Emperor Palpatine is still alive?

Despite him getting thrown down a bottomless reactor shaft and then blasted into bits and tiny pieces upon the Deathstar 2.0 destruction, a recent rumor tells us that the actor Ian McDiarmid, the guy who plays as Palpatine will return to Episode VII.

This sounds pretty credible considering the fact that Darth Maul survived when he fell into a similar shaft while he was sliced in half.

Darth Maul surviving was stupid enough, but he didn't get vaporized into space debri.

I guess Palpy could end up being a ghost.

Kinda hoping this is true. To be honest I'm sick of that little wrinkly ball of evil :/

From what I remember reading on Wookieepedia awhile back, his consciousness moved to different clones of himself, escaping death. This is why I don't read Expanded Universe books.

Is that the only reason? Your missing out.

Anyway maybe he's only a flashback or force ghost or an android or something.
Cant figure out how to make this sig thing do what I want.

Clone? That's the most viable option in my mind.

I highly doubt they'll bring him back as a live character (unless you do the clones like the EU novels) but I could see him as a force ghost..
